amazing the things that can be done with a little editing, talk about creating unreal expectations for people to live up to


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

*edit* the people who think of what to touch up are a bit dumb, though - I think women should have asses, what's wrong with those?

probably just me, but it sure looks like it...

resizing retouching, in my opinion, isn't right, especially if its to a major extent. I have less of a problem with getting rid of pimples and stuff, mainly cos they're usually temporary.

Situational stuff (lighting, white balance etc) really doesn't bother me.

I dunno, some things seem less retouchy than others...

Posted:It doesn't matter how many time people are told about retouching, they still aspire to a completely unrealistic and evidently imaginary bodyshape.

There was once a great piece of advice in a magazine: "Being upset because you don't have the same figure as a supermodel is as pointless as crying over not being as good at tennis as Venus Williams."

And yet who hasn't at some point? It took me 15 years to accept my bodyshape fully. I have dimples. So what?

Who can remember when M&S used a size 14 model in their adverts, which were pulled after a month because people didn't want to see real women on posters.

Madness.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:‘Powerful beyound measure’ I think fear basis is one can forget love and that only love is real. I think power is something that can be misused and one needs to be careful in the sense of discipline over domain and this is the fear of inadequacy and the substance or root of fear of ‘Powerful beyond measure’. if one forgets what is real and buys into the concept of power as a stand on its own, in other words becomes in love with power and not know what real power is than one is in deep water and in trouble with what is powerful beyond measure. i think what i want from powerful beyound measure is approval of the original creator of power rather than anyone else’s approval of what is powerful beyound measure to move from being small into being big.
